While bathrooms are often only thought of for their functional purpose, they're a great place to add interior style to your home. If you're planning on renovating your bathroom, you'll be faced with the decision of which surface materials to use. While most bathroom remodeling companies offer standard acrylic, solid stone is a much higher quality product that provides many benefits.

Solid stone and engineered stone are two newer products that have quickly taken the bathroom remodeling industry by storm. With exceptional visual appeal and durability, you won't regret utilizing this material in your bathroom upgrade. Let's take a look at some of the reasons why it's superior to acrylic.

Top-Notch Durability

Acrylic is prone to cracking, chipping, peeling, and discoloring. After years of use and exposure to water, acrylic will show some obvious signs of wear and tear. None of these problems are a concern for solid stone surfaces. These products utilize resins and other materials to create a durable, long-lasting surface that's impervious to normal degradation and damage. It makes for a much better investment.

Stunning Visual Appeal

Most forms of acrylic are visually boring. With engineered or solid stone, you don't have to feel stuck with a white and sterile bathroom. This material has a number of key attributes that make it better for bathroom design and aesthetics, including:

  • Customization Potential: Acrylic generally comes straight from a manufacturer with zero customization. Solid stone can be fabricated to match your family's exact needs.
  • Color and Pattern Options: Engineered stone can be mixed with a variety of pigments and can utilize image rolls to provide unique stylistic properties.
  • Transitionless Installations: Solid and engineered stone has no seams between panels. Acrylic, on the other hand, has very visual separation lines between different panels.

Low Maintenance and Upkeep

With no grout lines or porous acrylic material, solid and engineered stone is much easier to clean and maintain. You won't have to worry about mold and mildew building up in your tub and walk-in shower, and cleaning can be easily completed with some disinfectant and a rag. Your bathroom remodel will continue to look like new for years to come.
